Abstract
We investigated circularvection and illusory body tilt about the horizontal axis in the pitch and roll planes in bilateral labyrinthine-defective (L-D) subjects. Results demonstrated that the bilateral group experienced complete unambiguous self-rotation through an upside-down orientation. The relative contributions of the otolithic and somatosensory graviceptors to visuall-induced tilt is discussed.
